Neurodiversity

I have Autism.  Neurodiversity resonates with me in particular.  The following definition came from the site for The National Symposium on Neurodiversity at Syracuse University.  I met a woman in a store with Tourette Syndrome.  The clerks were keeping their distance from her and other customers were staring from the loud noise that she was making.

I went up and spoke with her.  She was extremely nice and as she spoke and made the loud sounds, she kept apologizing.  She was clearly embarrassed.  There should be no reason to make her feel embarrased.  She can’t control the events.  Sadly, many people are not educated on what it means to have Tourette Syndrom.  I feel that more education on Neurodiversity is critical.   Do you know someone with a condition that should be more tolerated?

“Neurodiversity is a concept where neurological differences are to be recognized and respected as any other human variation. These differences can include those labeled with Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Dyscalculia, Autistic Spectrum, Tourette Syndrome, and others.”

“For many autistic people, neurodiversity is viewed is a concept and social movement that advocates for viewing autism as a variation of human wiring, rather than a disease. As such, neurodiversity activists reject the idea that autism should be cured, advocating instead for celebrating autistic forms of communication and self-expression, and for promoting support systems that allow autistic people to live as autistic people.”
